It has been years my rosary beads my hubby bought me have been lost. They are at least 55 years old. He bought them at Notre Dame Cathedral at Notre Dame University in Indiana, while we were in Ind visiting his sister. I thought they probably went to the Salvation Army along with a purse that I forgot to check. I used to call it my funeral purse which I always put my rosary in. The other day I couldn't find my meds I picked up at the pharmacy so went in search in the car. I felt under the seat and low and behold I felt what I thought was a bracelet and pulled out my rosary. I have vacced that area a hundred times and never picked them up. I am guessing my purse must have opened and things spilled out and I hurriedly picked up the contents and didn't notice the beads were missing. I just couldn't believe it. I have prayed so much over the years to find them and finally I have them back. They mean so much to me.
The cross on these beads are from beads I had when I made my confirmation.
When it looked like I never would find these beads I made a pair from a utube video
The cross and connecting medal came from beads that belonged to my mom.
I think I am going to put my moms cross on my old beads as it has a white background and my beads are white.
I am so happy!!!
Yes, I immediately said the rosary on my lost beads and yes I found my pills.
